Farms and farmhouses in Templeton

19th century

All, including the farmers paying rent to the Chichester family and listed in the account book. 

Notes - the ag.labs who are listed in the notes usually appear at that 'address' in the census, the cottages being part of the estate. Only two farms were not rented. Those owned by the Chichester family are in bold. These farms were not static. Many seem to have been sub-let, extra fields were rented in some years and many were combined with parts of others, leaving farmhouses standing empty. In one example James Sayer is listed as a farmer, not just an ag.lab. but he was presumably still living in his (possibly) tied cottage. Any others in the same column as the farmers were lodging in the farmhouse itself.
